A Colorado skier admits he ignored the warnings about dangerous conditions after a close call with an avalanche.

He captured video from a camera mounted on his helmet.

It happened as he went back-country skiing with a friend in Grand County, Colorado.

Within moments of making his drop, you can see the snow beneath him split and open up into a full-blown avalanche.
